I’m a Master in Nutrition and a Certified Holistic Coach, I studied Human Nutrition, Meditation, Yoga, and Ayurvedic Nutrition and Pharmacy.
After facing a series of challenges in my own life, I have come to believe you can create a life that you love and that is giving you more. Using certain tools to obtain your mental freedom and emotional and physical growth, you begin to feel like life is happening for you and not against you.
I can’t wait to show you all the ways you can flourish and own your unique beauty. But first, I want to take a moment to share my story with you, because I’m somebody who dared to transform my entire life! Perhaps you’ll see some of yourself in this story.
In July 2017, I renounced all the life I knew in Costa Rica to embark on a mission of self-discovery as I became a solo traveler for 27 months.
With an intention in my heart and a backpack in my hands, I kiss goodbye the person I used to be to invite the possibility for openness and change. I traveled without a particular course. I lived in communes in the mountain, spent a lot of time by myself, met many interesting people, and had many masters along the way. It was nuts! But between the chaos I was living in, I found beauty (Hence the name Rame, meaning in Balinese beauty in chaos).
So why did I take such a crazy move to find myself? You see, since I was pretty young, I developed a strong people pleaser personality. I used to take extreme importance on what I needed to accomplish to be considered a successful person in the eyes of others, without even asking myself what I wanted from life?.
By the age of 30, with no awareness that I was hurting so bad my soul, I built a life full of “successes” but not entirely true to myself. I was what many call an achiever. I had a master’s degree, bought a house, created my own company, and married (but had an unhealthy relationship). I thought all this would bring me happiness, but as a result, I developed eating disorders, anxiety, insomnia, depression, and panic attacks. My self-worth was on the ground, and I didn’t know who I was anymore. Honestly, I just wanted to be high all the time to numb myself and feel free.
Wanting different results, I made the bold decision to take my life into my own hands. I began investing lots of time in self-development, spiritual practices, studies, & workshops. I got empowered, and finally, I sold everything I had, eliminated everything that was getting in my way to fulfill my dream of becoming a free soul traveler of the world.
After all the dust has settled and I reflect on what I have learned, I’m rooted in a beautiful small town in the mountains of Sierra Nevada in California, USA. I live with my husband Kyle, my baby daughter Lya and our Dog Nobody. I feel peace and gratitude, in big part thanks to all I have learned, which I want to share with you.
I work as a Holistic Nutritionist and Meditation Teacher helping people experience their best selves. To make such profound changes to our life we must bring all these tools together, no single one is the cure. Hence the term Holistic Lifestyle. I created this blog to share everything I learned from my studies, travels, and passions, including self-awareness, nutrition, and wholesome living.

After studying Nutrition and Dietetics at the University of San José, Costa Rica, I got my first job as a Nutritionist in charge of a private Jewish School’s cafeteria, where I was in charge of the student’s daily menu. After this, I worked in a 5-Stars Hotel, where I was in charge of the special diet menus of 8 different restaurants.
After some years of working with food and recipes, I wanted to learn more about the human body, so I completed a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition at the University of Chile, where I did my thesis on the topic of inflammation of the adipose tissue, creating my first published scientific paper. I also studied a specialty in diabetes on the same campus.
When I returned to Costa Rica, I opened a private nutrition consultation, where I mainly worked with athletes, weight control, vegetarians and vegans, and chronic illnesses. During this time, I also studied online to become a Certified Coach. As I practiced Crossfit and had many clients competing in this sport, I also studied to become a Crossfit coach.
After five years as a private nutrition consultant, I realized you couldn’t reach wellness only from the body level but needed a holistic approach.
While searching for alternative medicines, I discovered Ayurveda and Meditation, so I traveled to India to become a Certified Ayurvedic Nutrition and Pharmacy Practitioner and a Yoga and Meditation Teacher.
Today I enjoy so much mixing Western and Eastern pieces of knowledge. I see the body as a whole, and my therapies are with food and involve self-awareness and mindful practices. I also love to teach meditation with my signature workshop, Meditation for Beginners.
I genuinely believe in the power of natural, wholesome food and self-awareness practices, making quality and nourishment my primary focus. No one diet fits us all, and my mission as a nutritionist is to show simple and easy ways to keep a high-quality diet and simple mindful practices so you can nourish that beautiful, unique temple and mind of yours.

Frequent Asked Questions about me:
Which exercise do you practice?
With exercise, I seek consistency rather than perfection. I mostly do weightlifting 3 to 4 times a week and love lifting as heavy as possible. I also practice Yoga alone, but I miss going to classes and sharing the practice with other humans (with a baby now is getting harder to go). I’m not particularly eager to do cardio, so I like swimming in the pool in summer and hiking in the mountain whenever possible.
Which diet tendency do I follow?
My journey in learning about nourishment and healing through food has come a long way, evolving and starting from a young age. I turned vegetarian when I was only 12, becoming a vegan in my twenties. After 16 years of not eating animal products and being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, now in my late thirties, I completely changed my way of eating (and it has been the best decision for my body and health). Now I follow an Animal-Based diet, including the less-toxic and most nutrient-dense foods on the planet: nose-to-tail animal products (meats and organs), raw dairy, fruits, and raw honey.
Do you meditate every day?
I cannot say I do a daily meditation, but I include a small practice every day. Practice, as I call it, involves meditation, breathing, or any self-awareness exercise (like journaling). If I spend many days without doing this work, my mind starts ruling my days, creating a sense of unbalance, which I don’t enjoy.
What do you do with your free time?
As a regular activity, listening to podcasts and audiobooks while I clean the house or go for a walk is one of my favorite activities, as well as turning the music loud and dancing with myself (and now with my baby daughter). I also enjoy choosing a new study topic and investigating it with my husband. In winter, I love to snowboard; in summer, I enjoy camping and hiking in the mountains or on the beach.
What are your personal struggles?
I struggled a lot with my weight as a young woman and developed eating disorders for years. Today I heal that part, but my mind wanders quite a bit. I still worry a lot, practice overthinking, sometimes suffer insomnia, and doubt myself many times. Procrastination and perfectionism are probably my most significant weaknesses.
Which people do you like to follow?
There are so many people sharing fantastic work out there! Here are some of my favorites:
